Online Panda Days organized by SZTE Confucius Institute


For many years now, we have been hosting hundreds of children on Panda Day, which was organized on the occasion of Children's Day on the terrace of the Giraffe House in the Zoo of Szeged.

July 20, 2020

This year, due to the coronavirus outbreak, we decided to organize this event online, which lasted for four days. We created an event on the Institute’s official Facebook webpage where we shared some interesting facts about pandas for those interested.

Altogether 10 activities were organized for the four days. During this time, we managed to reach nearly 8,000 people, had 542 page views, and received 154 feedbacks for this event. In addition, the number of separate reactions exceeded 2,500.


Out of the answers to the online quiz, 10 lucky winners received family tickets to the Botanical Garden of Szeged as well as SZTE Confucius Institute panda masks.


The activities were the following:
